Virtual college - practical tips for parents and carers on keeping children safe online


It can be daunting when your child starts to interact with the online world.  Digital technology plays such a huge part in our lives and bring with it many benefits.  It is vital that we teach children and young people how to use it responsibly.  We can help harness healthy attitudes, habits and digital resilience. Schools are recognising their role, and starting to build awareness. 

What you can you do as a parent:

  • empower - help them to take control of their technology, understand the world they are interacting with, and how it can affect them
  • balance - instil an understanding of the necessity for a balance between online and offline activities
  • online safety - help them learn how to use their devices safely
